Kardo Locksmith had a house rekey project in Glassell Park, CA. The homeowner called for a house rekey, and they needed upgraded locks since they had done some remodeling. We responded to their request for a locksmith Glassell Park quickly as the homeowner was looking for a residential locksmith. We were able to completely rekey the house and also provided them with more secure locks throughout their home.
Remodeling your home can be really exciting, especially if you're a first-time homeowner. However, you should not forget to take essential precautions after completing the work. If you rely on contractors to come over while you are not at home, they will need a set of keys. So, the best and safest option is to have your locks rekeyed after their last visit to your house.
What is rekeying?
Rekeying a lock is replacing the functioning key of the lock with another key without replacing the actual hardware of the lock. You can keep the same lock, but the old key will no longer work. The lock will be removed, and some of its inner parts will be replaced. These parts are called key pins or tumblers that fit to a specific key. If you change or reset the pins, the old key will no longer work, and basically, the new key will be set to work with the current lock. You should definitely seek help from a professional residential locksmith to solve your problem since this requires knowledge and skill. You can attempt to rekey a lock yourself, but if you fail, you could mess it up completely. That's why it's easier for you to hire a residential locksmith to rekey your locks.
When should you consider rekeying?
Remodeling – Professionals like electricians, roofers, painters, plumbers, contractors, and others may have a set of your keys because they may have to enter your home at different times. This is important during project operations, especially if you are not at home all the time. But when the renovation is complete, it is easier for mistakes to happen with your house keys getting misplaced. This can result in strangers having keys that allow them to enter your home.
New home - Rekeying your locks when moving into a new place can be an inexpensive way to guarantee that no one else has duplicate keys to your new home. You never know who still has a copy of your house keys.
Lost key - You have lost your keys or a duplicate of them, and you're worried that someone might find them and try to break into your house. You can rekey your locks so that the lost key won't work anymore.
